Dear North Colonie Community,
The North Colonie Central School District has confirmed today, Tuesday, Nov. 24, that two individuals in our school community have tested positive for COVID-19.
- The first individual is associated with the high school community and was last in the building on Friday, Nov. 20.
- The second individual is associated with grades 7-8 in the high school building and was last in the building on Thursday, Nov. 19.
We have been in contact with the Albany County Department of Health and identified each individual’s close contacts in the school community. Anyone who has been in close contact with these individuals has been directly contacted by a school administrator to discuss quarantine procedures and other health-related instructions. A call from the New York State Department of Health contact tracers will follow.
We continue to work closely with the Albany County Health Department and follow their guidance each time our district has a positive case.
At this time, all of our school buildings remain open for in-person learning. As a reminder, each of our school buildings are thoroughly cleaned and disinfected each evening in accordance with guidance from the CDC and the New York State Department of Health.
Please reach out to your child’s principal if you have any questions.
D. Joseph Corr
Superintendent of Schools
